Well there aren't any pretty photos because it was just a boiler replacement! I say just but I was abroad and my tenant had phoned to say the old boiler wasn't working and it was a very cold November in Scarborough. I have used MyBuilder before and been very happy so on Monday 18 November with fingers crossed sitting in a cafe with wifi, I placed my advertisement on MyBuilder. I had only owned the flat for 6 months and the boiler was an old Isar so a replacement seemed better than a temporary fix. I invited a few possible gas engineers and Danny Young from York replied almost immediately. We then spoke on the phone and he gave me a resume of his cv and of himself which gave me confidence as to his sincerity. He said he could do the job that week so I sent him the poor photos below! He rang again with advice and emailed me a very reasonable quote. Danny spoke to my tenant to arrange the date for the boiler replacement, Thursday 21st November. Danny turned up at the agreed time changed the boiler so all fixed and working within 4 days in the middle of winter. He phoned me to confirm that the central heating was working and that my tenant again had a warm flat! What a relief to find such an honest and reliable gas engineer who so readily and calmly replaced my boiler at a very fair price when I was thousands of miles away. My tenant is happy which makes me happy! Thank you Danny!
